The First Anunnaki Cities

Zakaria  Sitchin  (1920-2010) eminent biblical  scholar and author  that spent 60 years researching  and translating Sumerian. Clay tablets and other ancient texts that identify Anunnaki and their planet  Nibiru.

Zakaria Sitchin  talks about Atra Hasis tablet that made its way to the private library of J. Pierpont Morgan in New York  circa 1897 containing a colophon notation by tablet scribe that dated the tablet 2 millennium B.C.

Efforts to piece together the text from various  sources resulted in tracing in British Museum and in the museum of  the Ancient Orient in Istanbul  Turkey  all three tablets of Babylonica version of Atra Hasis.

Preserved in each. One was the Scribe statement giving  his name , title and date of completing the tablet.

This is the Babylonian  version of the Noah Deluge tale. And it too was a copy of the original.

In 1914 one of the early Sumer logistics Arno Pieces make known the astounding content of a tablet kept in a fragments box catalogue CBS 10673 in the collection of the Phyladelphia University Museum.

Less than half preserved this reminder of the original Sumerian Deluge Record.

The columns 1 to 3 of the tablet expand the tale. The text describes the circumstances of the Deluge and the events that preceded it.

The text goes back  to the time the Anunnaki  had come to earth  and settled in the Edin.

It was those early days when Anunnaki  brought Kingship  down from heaven. The text asserts in column 2 that five cities of Gods  were founded and they were a located to gods foment Nibiru.

The first of these cities Eridu,
To the leader  Nudimmud was given.
The second Bad – Tibiara ,  he gave to Nugig.
The third Lara to Pabilsag was given.
The forth Sipper he gave to the hero Utu
The fifth Shuruppak to Sud was given.

The disclosure  that some time after they arrived to earth but long before Deluge the Anunnaki  established  five settlements is a major revelation. That cities names and their God rulers are stated is quite astounding.

But what is even more amazing about this list is that four of their sites have been found and excavated by modern archeologists.

The lines relate how Ziusudra (Noah) had been forewarned by God Enki about the Deluge, how Deluge had raged for seven days and nights and how Enlil granted Ziusudra life like a god.

 

 

 

Eridu

At the southernmost part of Sumer WHERE the Tigre and Ephrata Rivers come together in marshlands bordering  Persian Gulf a site locally called Abu Shahar in had attracted  the attention  of the British  Museum  as early as 1854. One of its experts J. E. Taylor reported after preliminary digging that the effort was unproductive of any very important results.

He did bring back some unimportant finds some mud bricks with writing on them. Fifty years later two French Assyriologists determined from those bricks that the site was ancient Eridu its name meant “House in the faraway built”. And it was the Sumer first city.

After world War two the I raking rectorate of Antiquities dug away occupation stratum from the latest top to the earliest bottom and uncovered 17 levels above the first one.

The city original temple (4000 B.C.) was dedicated to Sumerian god EA whose name meant “He whose Home is Water. It was his autobiography and many other texts who had waded
